ERIC CLAPTON AND JEFF BECK COMBINE FORCES FOR THREE NORTH AMERICAN SHOWS THIS FEBRUARY

Eric Clapton
Eric Clapton and Jeff Beck have confirmed three North American co-headlining shows for February, 2010. The announcement comes on the heels of the tandem's previously confirmed shows at London's O2 February 13-14, 2010.

Clapton and Beck will kick things off in the states on February 18 at New York City's Madison Square Garden, then head north for a February 21 show at Toronto's Air Canada Center, and wrap things up February 22 at the Bell Center in Montreal. Ticket info is scarce at the moment, but Toronto onsale begins December 4, 10 a.m. local time. For more information you can head to Clapton or Beck's web sites here and here.

Earlier this year Clapton and Beck co-headlined for the first time ever at Tokyo's Saitama Super Arena.

Eric Clapton and Jeff Beck Tour Dates
02/13/10 Sat O2 Arena London, GB
02/14/10 Sun O2 Arena London, GB
02/18/10 Thu Madison Square Garden New York, NY
02/19/10 Fri Madison Square Garden New York, NY
02/21/10 Sun Air Canada Centre Toronto, ON

I'm sure the ticket prices will be outrageous, but these guys can still play. The recent Beck video "Live At Ronnie Scott's" has them playing together and it is outstanding. That is a show that I would like to see, maybe not in an arena thoughh.

We'll be going to the ACC show in Toronto. I think there is bootleg now in circulation of that Tokyo show. I remember Rolling Stone reviewing that show and just gushing about it profusely.

Gushing profusely?

OK, we now have the ingredients for a rather foul hijack. I'll leave that to others.

Not too profuseley... I thought the last Jeff Beck album I heard was really bad and chucked it in the dumpster... Do like and admire his early stuff though...

This Beck video you mention - would that be the November 2007 shows, bootlegged as Exhaust Note, or is it something more recent?

Thank for the link. I've droned on about this before but Jeff Beck really is a phenomenal guitar player - his technique and control are absolutely unsurpassed - truly an astonishing musician.

Agree totally about Beck. Clapton's overrated. What's he done that's outstanding, that could be his trademark? Nowt. He was out of his depth at the North Sea Jazz Festival in the late 90s. (Unlike Santana who teamed up with Wayne Shorter!)

O2 in London 13th February 2010 tickets £60 - £125 (80 - 150 dollars) here's a taste of what to expect.

Too far away from London to see gigs there unless I can find somewhere to stay, and the price is a bit off-putting. As with the Clapton/Winwood tour I guess I'll wait for the DVD.
